Santa Catalina Group's story

The communal bank "Santa Catalina" is in its first loan cycle through the women's program. The members all work and help each other mutually to get ahead. When taking the poverty elimination survey, it was found that two of the members are below the poverty line.

On the survey she took, one of the members, Digna, showed a very low income and was below the poverty line. She wants to get ahead and is working hard to do so. She sells clothing and wants to increase her income.

She is requesting a loan to buy all kinds of clothing so she can keep working and offer a wide variety of goods to her customers. This loan will allow her to invest in her business.
